Disclosure: I’m so happy to share with you my Mary Kay Look. This was a compensated post in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Mary Kay. However, all opinions are my own.
I honestly believe that beauty comes from within but we can always enhance that beauty with a little makeup? As long as you’re taking the classic and clean look, then we’re good to go. 🙂
I introduce to you “Marite” Classic beauty – With her evening look, Marite reflects her personality and beauty with a color look that is bold yet classic. Eyes defined with liquid eyeliner and super sensual lips will make her shine. Please feel free to watch the Youtube vide0 below.
Step 1 – Start with a clean palate. A fresh face and some SPF moisturizer as a base is essential in keeping your look clean. I apply the concealer just under my eyes, around me nose, corner of lips and around my eyebrows. I have reddish undertones so the concealer just tones it all up.
Step 2 – I then apply Mary Kay® Mineral Powder Foundation in Ivory 2 to my face.
Step 3 – I follow with the Mary Kay® Mineral Bronzing Powder in Desert Sun to my cheekbones, forehead and chin. I love this duo because I can use the bronzer and highlighter together or separate. I achieve the sun kissed glow by highlighting the bridge of my nose and right above the apples of my cheeks.
Step 4 – A light sweep of Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Honey Spice goes from my eyelids to eyebrow bone. It’s going to act as the base and highlighter to my eyes.
Step 5 – Now I grab the Mary Kay® Liquid Eyeliner in Black and start lining my lash line from middle to end and sweep upwards to create the “cat eye”. I then fill in the rest.
Step 6 – I like to begin the smokey eye technique after I’ve accomplished the lash lining. It makes it easier to blend from the outer corner to the middle of you eye lid.
Step 7 – Blend in the Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Color in Truffle from the outer corner of your eye in towards the middle.
Step 8 – Mary Kay® Ultimate Mascara™ in Black is the finishing touch to your eyes. Remember, there is no need to pump the mascara. That actually dries up your product. Start applying the mascara from the bottom of you inner lashes and out. I wiggle the brush from left to right as I go up to create a more intense and full look.
Step 9 – Apply a hint of Mary Kay® Mineral Cheek Color in Strawberry Cream to the apples of your cheeks. (You can find the apples of your cheeks by smiling nice and big. The apple is the top area of your cheeks.)
Step 10 – I use a lip brush to outline my lips before I apply the Mary Kay® True Dimensions™ Lipstick in Firecracker. So, I line and then fill them in.
I’ve received so many compliments and I’m not ashamed to say that I was loving them. Everyone’s asking me what I’m wearing and I proudly respond “Mary Kay”. It’s good to reflect what you feel on the inside, on the outside.
Get the look!
